Best Honeymoon Resorts in the Continental US (Part 2)
COVID-19 has undoubtedly changed our lives. And I believe that it will be a good long time before we can plan International travel. Plan on pushing international trips until Fall or Winter. Does this mean that we can't travel? Unfortunately, the answer is yes, for now. Temporary discomfort will lead to a more robust nation. So stay home now and plan for the future. When domestic travel is possible, you will be ready to take to the friendly skies. It is time to discover all the wonders of our home. Here is part 2 of my best honeymoon resorts in the Continental USA.
Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, Dallas, TX
One of the most renowned resorts in Texas, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, retains the intimate stylings that made it a must-visit hotel. Sophistication and luxury are alive and well at Rosewood Mansion. The Mansion Restaurant offers fresh cuisine based on seasonal ingredients.
Ocean House, Watch Hill, RI
Windswept beaches await you at the Ocean House; the resort dates from 1868 and evokes a bygone era. It captures the ambiance of the area's turn-of-the-century summer estates, but still provides today's discerning travelers with the most modern luxury.
The Cloister at Sea Island, Sea Island, GA
Does your idea of heaven include miles of uninterrupted Southern Coast, private beaches, marshes, golf courses, and sailing? Then you should heat to the lovely Cloister at Sea Island. There is no better choice on Sea Island.
Las Alcobas, Napa Valley, CA
This lovely and romantic resort sits right inside of a vineyard. It is perfect for couples that love the beautiful things in life. Many of the rooms face out into the winery! They have an excellent restaurant on the property (I highly recommend the shrimp), and their spa is top-notch.
Lake Austin Spa Resort, Austin, TX
Nestled along the shores, lies Lake Austin Spa Resort offers guests the sanctuary of a world-class wellness resort and the hospitality of a neighbor. Lake Austin Spa Resort does have an extensive all-inclusive package. Not only do they include meals, but they also include classes, outdoor activities, and select body treatments at their spa.
Enchantment Resort, Sedona, AZ
The dramatic red rocks that fill Sedona set the stage for an enchanting and romantic experience when you arrive. A stay at Enchantment Resort will enrich your mind, body, and spirit. You will find a deep connection with nature as you explore the area together. Total relaxation awaits you at the resort's fantastic destination spa.
Stillpoint Lodge, Halibut Cove, AK
Are you looking for near-total seclusion in nature's lover's paradise? If yes, take a short boat or floatplane trip across the towering mountain fjord of Kachemak Bay. You’ll find a secluded luxury resort, Stillpoint Lodge, nestled at the edge of a wilderness. It is an exceptional choice for eco-conscious, outdoorsy couples.
White Barn Inn, Kennebunk, ME
White Barn Inn has been a landmark in Kennebunk for 150 years. The inn affords guests supreme levels of quality, luxury, and service. If you are looking for a laid back honeymoon in a quaint and calm setting, White Barn might be for you. Excellent shopping and art galleries abound in the charming coastal town of Kennebunkport.
Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado, Santa Fe, NM
Encantado is an oasis of serenity and luxury, set against the dramatic foothills of Sangre de Cristo Mountains. It combines wellness and rejuvenation, and it taps into New Mexico's mystic energies. The elegant casitas complement the breathtaking landscape. The renowned spa and fine dining create a unique experience.
The Roosevelt, New Orleans, NO
Iconic, luxurious, and romantic, the Roosevelt in New Orleans is the perfect honeymoon hotel in one of the most romantic cities in the US. The Roosevelt has stood at the heart of the history, cuisine, entertainment, and culture for the last 100 years. Stroll the sidewalks of Royal Street and soak in a wealth of music that wafts from the nearby jazz clubs.
Mandarin Oriental, Washington, D.C.
Nestled along D.C.’s picturesque waterfront Mandarin Oriental D.C. affords guests with immaculate views of The Jefferson Memorial, Tidal Basin, Washington Channel, District Wharf, and Washington Monument. The Mandarin provides access to D.C.’s most sought-after attractions. Eleven of the Smithsonian museums are a short walk away. This urban oasis is truly a piece of paradise. I have not given the Continental US as much love as it deserves. But that is going to change. I didn't realize how many incredible honeymoon resorts exist so close to home! I have another blog planned to highlight magnificent resorts that the Continental US has to offer, so stay tuned. Don't miss Part 1 of this blog series.
